- Product Details
- Its name means "dark wheat," and that's just what it is. An amber-colored version of a German hefeweizen, Dunkelweizen has the same spicy yeast and creamy wheat character of its pale counterpart, but with as much rich maltiness as a dark Bavarian lager. This kit produces an ale with a hazy mahogany color, medium-full body, and spicy, bready aromas and flavors.

- 4.1 / 5.050 ReviewsIt's that little something more than a plain hefeweizenVery easy to brew. I added a little caramunich malt into the recipe to give it that little extra kick. Went with the wyeast 3068 and held temps around 67-68F. The banana/clove smell and taste are spot on.December 14, 2015This Is Great!This was my 1st Northern Brewer recipe and I have to say that this is AMAZING! I followed the enclosed NB instructions with only one exception--I steeped 8oz of Caramunich I. I would say that this is on par with some of the $9 bottles of Dunkelweizen that I have purchased from local beer stores. Can't wait to share this one with friends and family. This is a beer that any home brewer can be proud of! Bravo Northern Brewer!April 23, 2016My Husband's FavoriteIf you're expecting Franziskaner, this is not it, but it's a great beer. I brewed this in September and we've been drinking it all winter. Easy to brew, and every time I share some with my husband, he says, "Yeah, that IS good beer...is there another bottle?" Let it sit for at least 4 weeks in the bottle.December 28, 2010Big Hit For My Octoberfest PartyTasted great prior to carbonation - great spices and aroma. Got a little funky after carbonation but finished very nicely after a week or so. It was a big hit at the party!

Is it supposed to be like this?BEST ANSWER: Yes his kit has two malt bottles. its as simple as simple can be. the Dunkelweizen came out great! two of my buddies that are avid brewers and do all grain and they thought it tasted great.
